    To find the FRA number for a highway-railroad crossing remotely, the Federal Railroad Administration, Office of Safety Analysis' Web site includes a number of ways a user can query the highway-railroad crossing inventory information to identify a single or group of crossings. This report provides two analyses for obtaining a quantitative means of rating the condition of railroad‐highway at‐grade crossings based on their measured roughness. Phase One of this report examined 11 crossings in the Lexington area by use of a laser based inertial profiler from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and a Face Rolling Dipstick. Phase Two was a continuation of Phase Author: Jerry G Rose, Thomas W Witt, Aaron F Renfro, Nathan E Ridgeway.

Final Report TP E. Analysis of grade crossing collisions. A highway-railway at-grade crossing is designed to fulfill its primary purpose of providing a smooth surface for the safe passage of rubber-tired vehicles across the railroad. The jointly used area represents a significantly expensive unit cost of the highway and railway line.

Ideally a highway crossing will maintain a smooth surface and. This Highway/Railway At-Grade Crossing Surface Rehabilitation Manual has guidance for performing highway/railway crossing rehabilitation projects.

GradeX: A Decision Support Tool for Hot Spot Identification and Countermeasure Analysis of Highway-Railway Grade Crossings. GradeX is a decision-support tool that could be used by railway safety engineers and decision-makers in Canada to identify and target grade crossing hotspots, evaluate countermeasures, and prioritize safety improvement projects.

The main objective of this project component is to develop an improved procedure for quantifying the expected benefit of the Transport Canada’s grade crossing regulatory proposal. GradeX was developed mainly for the purpose of evaluating the risk of highway-railway grade crossings and identifying the high-risk crossings for safety improvement.

Comprehensive information on crossing renewal was obtained from several states, and detailed descriptions are included of the six effective state-level programs, specifically those in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Georgia, Michigan, and West Virginia.
